Thoughts of Home...
Stunning Thanksgiving Vignettes Tour
I want to thank the Thoughts of Home girls for including me in this tour. I am honored to be here with so many talented ladies.
In fact, I went a little crazy creating a tablescape for a thanksgiving buffet. It just kept growing in size as I went into creative mode. One thing you will notice at my house is that I use color, and lots of it. :-)

I am calling this my "Giving Thanks, Receiving Grace" table. Thanksgiving is a time when we think about our blessings, and give thanks for them.
Let me show you how I go about creating my "giving thanks" buffet table.
I begin by placing a wide roll of heavy brown craft paper (thick postal package paper) as a table runner on the backside of my table. It protects my tabletop from decorations and the rough bottoms of my serving pieces. (You might want to use two strips to cover your whole table.)
I make a stack of platters to use as a pedestal for my sparkly pumpkin. I start out with a cake platter, then stack platters like pancakes. :-)
I then add acorns, leaves, and small pine cones to my presentation.
I went a little crazy adding more and more pumpkins to extend the centerpiece the whole length of the dining room table.
Again...real pumpkins would make this more authentic and dare I say spectacular, but I think you get the idea for my vignette here. More is more. :-)
I love to see piles of pumpkins and bales of straw in peoples' yards in the fall, which was the inspiration for my table. I wanted a pile of pumpkins on my buffet table. :-) I wanted to go "big" this year.
The front half of my table is ready to be filled with bowls of yummy food for my family.
Join us On Thursday...link up your own Thanksgiving vignettes at the usual Thoughts of Home link party!
